BOARD OF SELECTMEN 



1986 in retrospect can be given the theme "Service with the Public in Mind." It proved to be a year 
unmarked by controversy, and one in wliich progress was made on many fronts. Early in the year it became 
apparent that cost revisions in the Wilmington High School Renovtion Budget would substantially increase 
original estimates. In March the Permanent Building Committee recommended an additional $1.25 million 
dollars would be required to finish the project. The necessary supplemental financing won approval 182-4 at 
Town Meeting. V\lith the prospect of a state reimbursement of 65% for the expenses, a Proposition 2 1/2 
Override was obtained at a Special Town Election in June. The High School opened in September substantial!;, 
complete. The gymnasium was finished in time to host the first home basketball game in early December. 

The Town of Wilmington's relationship with the Reading Municipal Light Department became a matter of grave 
concern. Reading Municipal Light Department announced a rate increase, with 1S% slated to be an assessment 
to pay for Seabrook nuclear plant in New Hampshire. At a March 1986 hearing, the Wilmington Qiamber of 
Commerce expressed its belief that rate discrimination was involved. Reading Municipal Light Department 
disputed the figures in the progress report delivered to the Board of Selectmen on the town's alternatives 
for power service. However, the voters at the Annual Town Meeting voted to pursue a proposal of a 
town-owned electric department by a ballot vote of 380-22. Reading Municipal Light Department announced 
rebates on December bills as a result of excess revenue. Further steps in the development in the 
establishment of a Wilmington Municipal Electric Department will be presented at the 1987 Annual Town 
Meeting. 

Residential growth and interrelationships with regional business continues to expand in Wilmington with much 
of the Selectmen's time taken with concern for development and its consequences. While the attraction of 
the town to builders is a sign of community health, many fear the construction of apartments, condominiums, 
low-income housing and nursing homes. The Selectmen are keenly aware of privacy issues, the pressures on 
the cost of community services, the consequences of uncontrolled growth, the additional traffic, and the 
dangers involved in the use of comprehensive permits. 

In the Spring various coalitions formed to slow the pace of new construction. The first was a group of 
Chestnut Street residents that wanted to use the "Scenic Road" designation to maintain and preserve the 
natural beauty of certain streets. A second group formed to rezone all large tracts of land to R-60 
zoning. The Affordable Housing Task Force sought ways to achieve state housing requirements for low and 
moderate income families. The Board of Selectmen continues to wrestle with the Town Center project and the 
need for a 25% design public hearing. 

Various groups figured in the year's events: A new Senior Citizens' liulti -Purpose Center was dedicated in 
April in the renovated Buzzell School. Seniors, and many individuals, and organizations volunteered 
hundreds of hours and talent. A drop-in center for the handicapped opened in the Fourth of July 
Headquarters during the fall. The Walkathon in support of the Community Funds received wide participation. 
The long awaited Ristuccia Exposition Center (ice arena) opened in the fall. This new ice arena is the home 
of the Boston Bruins' s for their practice sessions. 

Water treatment and environmental clean-up received attention. A $4.9 million bond issue for a North 
Wilmington water treatment plant was signed. The Olin Corporation plant closing on Eames Street prompted 
the Water and Sewer Commission to seek a $250,000 assurance bond to insure proper sewer clean-up. 

The Board signed a ten-year agreement with Colony Communication, Greater Boston Cable Corporation parent 
company, after a series of lengthly negotiations between the town's Cable T.V. Task Force and Greater Boston 
Cable Corporation. The Board was able to receive agreement on several major issues: upgrade of the system 
to 54 channels, better reception, local office in the Town Hall during the rebuild, and a 5% of Greater 
Boston's gross revenues to fund local access channels for public, educational and governmental use.

In the fall, the board appointed a town-wide task force to address the issues of drug 
and alcohol abuse. It took the name "Alliance Against Drugs." Their first task was to 
survey all town departments, committees and other agencies as to what they do in 
relation to substance abuse. Their goal for 1987 is to forrnilate alternative action 
plans to address the issue of substance abuse in our community. 

An inventory of town-owned land, further progress on the plans for a new Town Center, 
lov>f-moderate income housing and its consequences, and the establishment of a Wilmington 
Municipal Electric Department are but ^ome of the tasks for 1987. 

I announced in December my intention to retire from the Board of Selectmen due to the 
demands of my family and private business interests. 

With permission from my fellow members on the Board of Selectmen, I will close this 
report to the Town of Wilmington by quoting from my letter to my fellow citizens: 

"I am proud of the manner in which town government 
has overcome the problems imposed by Proposition 2 1/2. 
I am confident the town is now enjoined to achieve 
success in such projects as the improvement of Wilmington 
Center, establishing our toxm municipal power company, 
and providing affordable housing for both our older 
residents and our your people who want to continue to 
live in Wilmington."

OFFICE OF THE AREA CODE 6 1 7 

TOWN MANAGER 658 3311 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Wilmington: 

Alexis DeToqueville in his 1835 work Democracy in America captured the essence of life 
in the new republic. His view of New England was precise, especially regarding New 
Englanders' response to democracy. The following quote is as true in 1986 as it was in 
1840: 

"In the American townships, power has been 
deceminated with admirable skill for the 
purpose of interesting the greatest possible 
number of persons in the common weal, 
independently of the voters, who are from 
time to time called into action, the power 
is divided among enumerable functionaries 
and officers, who all, in their several 
spheres, represents the powerful community 
in whose name they act." 

The Wilmington voters were called into action five times in 1986. In April, at the 
Annual Town Meeting, there were also two Special Town Meetings held immediately prior to 
the Annual Town Meeting. In June, there was a Special Town Election and a Special Town 
Meeting. In December there was a Special Town Meeting. 

At the Annual Town Meeting held in April, 1986, a budget of twenty-seven million dollars 
was voted. This meeting approved the funding of a position titled Conservation 
Administrator for the Conservation Commission and various other projects. For example, 
topographical mapping, replacement ambulance, replacement D.P.W. backhoe, and funding 
for a police management information system. The voters approved the town's share to 
fund the Silver Lake Feasability Study. The Wilmington Municipal Electric Department 
took another step closer to reality when a ballot vote was taken and passed 
overwhelmingly. The Permanent Building Committee received an approval for additional 
$1.25 million for further renovation and addition work at the High School. The Fourth 
of July Committee received $24,000 to fund an addition for the Fourth of July 
Headquarters. 

There were two Special Town Meetings held immediately prior to the Annual Town Meeting 
The voters turned down a warrant article to acquire the Roberts Estate containing 53 
acres, and they passed various budgetary transfers. 

In June, the Special Town Election and Town Meeting was called to exempt the debt for 
the $1.25 million for additional High School renovation and addition work from the 
provisions of Proposition 2 1/2. The Special Town Election passed this overwhelmingly 
and the Special Town Meeting appropriated the funds for maturing debt and interest. 
Various other items were voted on to resolve unfinished budget issues from the Annual 
Town Meeting. 

The Special Town Meeting held in December, 1986 was called to transfer funds within 
various FY-1987 budget accounts. 

On the whole, 1986 was one of great progress for the Town of Wilmington. The following 
is a brief summation of those highlights: 

. In March the Selectmen signed a ten-year renewal of the Cable T.V. 
Contract with Greater Boston Cable Corporation after a long series of 
negotiations between the Town's task force and the cable operator. The 
main tenents of this contract renewal are: 



-4- 



- 1. The Town is to receive 5% of the firm's gross revenues for the next ten years; 

2. The Town will receive $160,000.00 in equipment grants to equip a cable studio to be 
located in the High School; and, 

3. A non-profit corporation will be established to oversee local access. 

The Selectmen initiated an Affordable Housing Task Force to address the issue of creating 
housing opportunities for low and modernte income families. One of the interests of the task 
force has been the cataloguing and inventorying of town-owned and tax possession land so that 
the conditions of the three-year moratorium set at the Annual Town Meeting in April, 1985 will 
be met by the Annual Town Meeting in April 1988 

The Selectmen met with D.P.W. Commissioner Tierney, the State Senator and Representatives and 
the Wilmington Redevelopment Authority on the issue of the Town Center project to address the 
roles and responsibilities of each group and to establish a date for the 25% design public 
hearing. 

The Town held its first household hazardous waste collection day on Saturday, October 25, 
1986. This was an overwhelming success and it will become a tradition. 

Training sessions were held for elected and appointed town officials to foster better 
communication and cooperation. In particular, the Board of Selctmen, School Committee, and 
Finance Committee had joint training sessions in order to foster team work, coordination, and 
communication in goal-setting and problem solving. This program was funded by an incentive aid 
grant from the Executive Office of Communities and Development. 

The Selectmen developed a list of goals and priorities for themselves and myself. 

The former Town Hall was put back into use for two community groups, the Council of the Arts 
and the town's Emergency Management Agency. 

The Fire Department's new ladder truck with an 110' ladder was placed in service in April of 1986. 

Traffic engineers were hired to design and write the specifications on the county funded traffic 
signals to be placed at the intersection of Main Street and Richmond Road (Fred F. Cain bridge). 

The Selectmen formed a task force on drug and alcohol abuse named "Alliance Against Drugs." This 
group was formed with a mandate to address the problem of substance abuse. 

In August the town sold $4.95 million dollars in general obligation bonds - $3.7 for the North 
Wilmington Water Treatment Plant and $1.25 for the High School Renovation and Addition Project at 
an interest rate of 5.83%. 

For Fiscal Year 1987, the Board of Selectmen voted to classify the tax rate. The residential rate was set 
at $13.83 an increase of $.13 over last year's rate, and the commercial/industrial/personal property rate 
was set at $22.50 an increase of $.47 over last year's rate. The town's total valuation was increased from 
$930,577,655 to $965,978,582. 

During the year the Town was saddened by the death of Charles P. Lawrenson, Building Inspector. James J. 
Russo was named as his replacement. Robert L. Higgins, Town Engineer, retired. 

As can be seen in this report, 1986 was a year of progress for the Town of Wilmington. This is a direct 
result of the policies set forth by the Board of Selectmen and other policy making boards of the town. 
Their job is to set policy. It is the responsibility of the Town Manager and the department heads to 
administer the policies set forth by the policy making boards. As DeToqueville noted in the 1850' s, power 
on the local level is divided into a number of elements so that no one policy making board or administrator 
can become so powerful as to overrule and redirect the common good of the community. 

In summary, I wish to express my deepest appreciation to the Board of Selectmen for their leadership, 
guidance, and policy direction during 1986; to the department heads for earring out their management and 
administrative preogatives in a professional manner; and to all town employees for their hard work and 
devotion to service. In addition, I wish to acknowledge the numerous boards, committees and commissions 
that serve the Town of Wilmington so well. Lastly, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the 
residents of the Town of Wilmington for their continued cooperation and support. 



Respectfully submitted.

Department of Public Works 



In accordance with the By-Laws o£ the Town of Wilmington, I hereby respectfully submit the Annual Report on 
the activities of the five divisions of the Department of Public Works (Highway, Tree, Cemetery, Parks § 
Grounds and Rubbish Collection/Disposal) for the year 1986. 

HIGHWAY DIVISION 

All regular highway maintenance work was carried out during the year, such as sweeping streets, cleaning 
catch basins, patching streets, making and installing street and warning signs, picking up debris along our 
roadsides, repairing broken curbing, cutting brush, painting and replacing guardrails, scraping back roads, 
etc.

With the continuation of the beaut ificat ion program. Silver Lake property at Main Street was cleaned, loamed

storms and all the various departments for their cooperation during the year. I would also like to thank 
the Town Manager and Board of Selectmen for their support throughout the year. Last but not least, to the 
dedicated employees of the four divisions of the Department of Public Works who made 1986 a very productive 
year, my sincere thanks and appreciation. 



RUBBISH COLLECTION AND DISPOSAL 



-17- 



Town Engineer 



The Engineering Department assisted all town departments, boards, commissions and the public with 
engineering related projects such as, but not limited to: 



Department of Public Works - with the layout and design to eliminate drainage 
problems, reconstruction of ballfields, construction of sidewalks and cemetery 
expansion; 

Planning Board - with subdivisions; 

Water § Sewer Board - with construction projects; and 

Assessor - with up-dating of maps. 



The department makes note of some personnel changes during 1986. Robert L. Higgins retired as the Town 
Engineer; we wish him health and happiness in his retirment. Also, John 0' Donnell, Sr. Civil Engineer, 
resigned his position; we wish him well, also. 

The department continues to adjust time and resource priorities to better serve town-wide interests. 



The Wilmington Emergency Management Agency (WB1A) , housed in the basement of the "Old Town Hall", 219 
Middlesex Avenue, is a viable branch of your local government. The goals of W.E.M.A. are to supply needed 
services to the citizens of Wilmington. This would cover a wide spectrum of needs, from furnishing 
personnel and radios to assist at check points for the annual Walk-A-Thon, to providing personnel and 
emergency communications during hurricane Gloria and the past industrial incident in South Wilmington as 
well as supplying divers to the town for investigative purposes at the recent incident at Silver Lake. 

At the present time, the Agency has a very active and noted Radio Communications group comprised of sixteen 
(16) F.C.C. licensed radio operators. This radio communications team is supervised by Doug Chisholm and 
Mort Grant. The base station for the agency is located at the N.Y.N.E.X. tower at the junction of Routes 
129 and 38. The antenna mounted on top of the tower is a total of 183 feet above ground level. 
Subsequently, the Wilmington Emergency Management Agency has a communications capability noted as equal to 
if not superior to that of the 85 communities which comprise Area -1 Massachusetts Civil Defense. Area-1 is 
divided into sectors. Wilmington is in Sector 1-D, made up of a total of 19 communities. As of November 1, 
1986, the Wilmington Emergency Management Agency is now the net control, handling all emergency 
communications between Area-1 and the Sector 1-D communities. 

Another element of the agency is the Dive Team, under the supervision of William Gable and Robert Larivee. 
The Dive Team at present has three (3) fully equipped divers that, as previously mentioned, have been 
utilized by the Town. 

The Rescue Team, under the supervision of Mark Depasquale and Steven Larivee, is in the process of being 
reorganized and updated in terms of equipment needed. This year will mark the first major purchases of 
equipment for the Rescue Team. I am confident that under the direction of Mark and Steve, the Rescue Team 
will develop into as viable a unit as the Communications and the Dive Team. 

The Wilmington Emergency Management Agency extends its thanks and appreciation to all who have supported its 
growth and development. It continues to be my sincere privilege to serve the Town of Wilmington as the 
Coordinator of the Emergency Management Agency.

Police Department 



In ciccordance with the By-laws of the Town of Wilmington, I hereby respectfully submit the Annual Report on 
the activities of the Wilmington Police Department for the year of 1986. 

The enclosed statistical report represents the total for all crimes, complaints and incidents reported 
during the year 1986; and, for the most part the corresponding enforcement efforts of the Wilmington Police 
Department. During 1986 the total number of complaints and incidents reported to the police department 
increased by 11% from 12,914 incidents in 1985 to 14,203 during 1986. For the most part these increases 
were in the areas of minor crimes and service related incidents. In fact several of the serious crime 
categories decreased significantly during 1986. Breaking and Entering into homes and buildings were reduced 
by 20% from 119 incidents in 1985 to 95 during 1986. This follows a 42% decrease in these crimes during 
1985. Totals for Assaults and Batteries were down again by 54% from 29 in 1985 to 19 in 1986. Although the 
police department experienced an increase of 1,369 complaints during 1986, due to the reductions in the 
major crime categories, the Uniform Crime Reports compiled by the State and Federal Governments will again 
show a reduction in the crime rates for the Town of Wilmington during 1986. 

Motor Vehicle Accidents and Traffic congestion continues to be a serious Community problem; however, during 
1986 the police department experienced the lowest motor vehicle accident rate since the year of 1980. 
During 1986, motor vehicle accidents were reduced by 349 accidents from 1,396 accidents in 1985 to 1,039 
during 1986. The police department continued to place a high priority on the enforcement of motor vehicle 
violations during 1986 and we feel that the reduction in the accident rate is directly related to the 
department's vigorous enforcement. During 1985, the total number of motor vehicle offenses cited increased 
by 24% from 4,197 in 1985 to 5,190 during 1986, this follows a 50% increase in the number of motor vehicle 
violations cited during 1985. The major areas of increase were: Speeding Violations from 2,133 in 1985 to 
2,908 in 1986; Operators License Violation which increased from 174 in 1985 to 242 in 1986; and. 
Miscellaneous Violations which were increased from 1,470 in 1985 to 1,671 during 1986. Arrest for Operating 
a Motor Vehicle Under the Influence of Alcohol were reduced by 35% from 157 in 1985 to 102 during 1986. The 
department feels that the reduction in these arrest are due to the departments selective enforcement efforts 
during 1985 and 1986, and due to the public awareness brought about by the statewide efforts to eliminate 
drunken driving. 

Arrest for crimes other than motor vehicle offenses during 1986 totaled 737. During 1986 the police 
department continued to place a high priority on alcohol and drug related offenses. As a result, arrest for 
liquor law violations increased by 22% from 243 arrest in 1985 to 312 during 1986. This follows a 286% 
increase in arrest for these offenses during 1985. In addition to Motor Vehicle and Other Criminal arrest, 
the department placed a total of 273 persons under Protective Custody. A total of 1,112 persons were taken 
into custody by the police department during 1986. 

As a result of the increased enforcement efforts by the department, the fine monies returned to the Town of 
Wilmington from the Wobum District Court increased from $146,605 in 1985 to $171,706 during 1986. 

The department makes note of three new officers who were appointed to the police department during 1986, 
they were officers Charles R. Fiore, Paul L. Chalifour and James A. Hanlon. 

In closing this report, I want to thank the Town Manager, the Board of Selectmen, all other Boards and 
Committees; and, all Department Heads and their workers for their support and cooperation during 1986. 

A special note of thanks to the Staff and Members of the Wilmington Police Department, for without their 
support and continued efforts none of our accomplishments could have been realized.

PARKING SITE PLAN REVIEW 

The Board reviewed 18 applications for Site Plan Review referred to the Board by the Town Engineer and 
recommended accordingly. 

PLANNING BOARD REPRESENTATION AT THE BOARD OF APPEALS 

The Board wishes to thank William G. Hooper, Jr. its senior member who acts as its representative at the 
Board of Appeals hearings by expressing the Board's recommendation on zoning variances and special permits 
requested along with offering conditions to be included in Official Map Board of Appeals decisions. 

SPECIAL STUDIES 

The Board had to put on hold its study to propose a Scenic Roads By-Law in 1986 but has made a committment 
to several concerned citizens to continue with the study in 1987. 

Little time was also allotted to the Town-owned land cataloging and inventory due to the workload generated 
by subdivisions. The Board is hopeful to hire an intern in 1987 to work with them on this important 
project. A sub-committee consisting of Carole Hamilton, David Clark and Sandy Murphy was also appointed to 
work with the Affordable Housing Task Force Committee that was created in 1986. 

The Board wishes to extend its thanks to Robert L. Higgins, the Town Engineer who retired in October and who 
served as the Board's technical advisor.

Library Directory 



1986 has been an extremely productive year for the library. The work of the Merrimack Valley Library 
Consortium project continued with more than 50% of the library's bibliographic holdings entered into the 
data base by year's end. In October, the library staff began issuing new computer cards which can be used 
at any of the Consortium libraries currently "on line". Training for the various circulation procedures 
involved in this long term project is scheduled for February of 1987 with every expectation of "going on 
line" during March of 1987. 

The library is planning to enter Phase III of its plan during the latter part of 1987. From the beginning, 
PACS or public access terminals have been an integral part of the project so the public can gain direct 
access to the holdings of the network which currently consists of thirteen cities and towns comprising the 
Consortium. Already, interlibrary loan figures show an increase in network support in providing recpjested 
material, and the data base is searched daily to facilitate interlibrary loans. PACS will be still another 
means to increase public access. 

In tandem with the Consortium project, the daily service of the library continued. Reader-printers for 
microfilm and microfiche are available for public use. The materials on careers has been updated and 
expanded. A modest number of new periodicals has been added. Biweekly book displays organized around 
themes of current interest stimulated circulation. The library distributed federal and state tax forms 
during "the season" as usual, and monitored the use of the photocopier. Reference questions were answered. 
The Circulation Department kept statistics and sent out reserves, notices and bills. 

The fifth annual summer reading program, conducted in cooperation with the Wilmington Public Schools, was 
called "Star-Spangled Summer." Helena Minton, local poet and story hour volunteer, conducted poetry 
workshops throughout the program which concluded with an awards ceremony in September. 

Mrs. Beatrice Yankowski started in the "Old Library" and moved across the street with "new" in 1968. Bea 
retired in August, after nearly eighteen years service. Her passion for detail and daily dedication are 
missed. 

1985 saw the Town's library join the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium. 1986 has been spent pursuing the 
goal of getting "on-line". Without the dedication of the regular full-time staff and the part-time project 
staff, the realization of this goal would be impossible. It is with their continued efforts that the 
promise of March 1987 will become reality.

Recreation Department 



Wilmington's Recreation Department continued to provide a wide variety of leisure time activities for local 
citizens during 1986. 

Although our department is relatively small, with only one full time employee, it represents the second 
largest industry in the nation. In fact, Americans spend about 12 percent of their personal income on 
recreation. 

The Recreation Commission and Director keep in mind the following departmental objectives as they plan and 
conduct recreation programs throughout the year: 

To provide opportunities for self expression. 
To develop a sense of personal worth. 

To provide activiities that allow for personal achievment and accomplishment 
To provide activities that are fun and enjoyable. 

To provide physical activities vdiich are new and different, offering a certain amount of challenge to 
participants. 

To teach skills in various activities that will have carry-over value in later life. 
To provide a healthful and diversified program of recreation activities in an 
attempt to meet the needs and interests of the people being served. 

Our total funding comes form a variety of sources. User fees and donations heavily siqjplement the town 
funded budget which was decimated by the effects of Prop. 2 1/2 a few years ago. Volunteers still play a key 
role in providing two dollars worth of service for every dollar spent. We receive much help from local 
clubs and organizations. Some of these invaluable contributors are: Rotary, Kiwanis Club, Lions Club, 
Police Association, Town Employees Association, Arts Council, Sons of Italy, Elks, Camp 40 Acres, Special 
Needs PAC, Custodial Union, Chamber of Commerce and Knights of Columbus. Coupled with the support we get 
from the above is the assistance given from such civic minded businesses as: Sweetheart Plastics, Ski Haus, 
Elia's, Compugraphic, Massbank for Savings, Charles River, F ^ R Auto Supply, Aamco Transmissions, Rocco's, 
Dunkin Donuts, Town Crier, McDonalds, Realty World, Analog, Koch Membrane, Polaroid, Avco, Stellios, 
BayBank, Spinnelli Ins., and Converse. 

The Recreation Department is involved, in varying degrees, with many recreation oriented projects and 
groups. In this nature we serve as a quasi-consulting agency. We also loan equipment to families and 
groups of all types for various functions. 

Our basic programs are: Santa's workshop. Horribles Parade, Special Kids Christmas Party, Christmas 
shopping in New York City, spring trip to New York City, Basketball League, Men's Basketball, Mens' Gym, 
Swimming Lessons, Swim-A-Cross, CPR, First Aid, Ski Lessons, Punt Pass § Kick Contest, Gymnastics, Ladies 
Fitness, Cinema Discounts, Florida Discounts, Other Commercial Recreation Enterprise Discount Coupons, 
Sesame Street Live at the Boston Gardens, Special Needs Gym Program , Boat Cruise to Provincetown, T-Ball, 
Partnership in Health (with the Regional Health Center), Group trip to Disney World, Easter Egg Hunts, Wild 
Turkey Race for the Community Fund, Circus trip to Boston Garden, Bruins tickets, Discount shopping spree to 
Kittery, Maine, Topsfield Fair discount tickets, Playground, Tiny Tots, Special Needs Day Camp, Public Beach 
Supervision, Canoe Rental and Clinic, Crane's Beach Day, Teen Trips to Hampton Beach, Tennis Lessons, 
Concerts on the Common, Red Sox Trips, Sport Clinics, Fishing Derby, Selfe Defense, Co-ed Volley Ball, 
Disney on Ice Trip, Cross Country Ski Clinic, Free Loan of Fishing and Canoeing VCR Tapes, Rock Concert on 
the Common, Police Association Beach Day, Newport, RI trip, Easter Coloring Contest, Sale of Entertainment 
Discount Guides, Disney Trip Orientation, Little Red Wagon Drama Show, Lifeguard training. Rafting, Special 
Needs Rodeo Trip. 

Other groups that offer leisure type programs in Wilmington are: Little League, Pony League, Youth Hockey, 
Figure Skating Club, Men's Softball, Sqare Dancing, Wilmington Wheelman, Youth Soccer, Spotlighters, Tennis 
Club, July 4th Committee, Community Schools, Council on Aging, Council for the Arts, Scouts, Campfire and 
the BMX Bike Club. Schools and churches round out the active recreation picture. 

There is an obvious lack of commercial recreation facilities in Wilmington such as bowling centers and movie 
theatres. The town also lacks youth serving agencies such as YMCA's, YWCA's, Boys and Girls Clubs. The 
addition of the new Rink is a great plus. This void stresses the importance for tovm support of various 
leisure oriented programs. 



-32- 



Wilmington does have many fine natural areas where outdoor activities may be pursued. Silver Lake is our 
most important such asset offering a variety of aquatic sports from swimming, canoeing and sailing to 
skating and fishing in the winter months. The Town Park hill provides an excellent area for sledding during 
the long winter. The large number of conservation and water department lands provide an extremely healthful 
environment for man and animal alike. These protected properties allow for passive recreation such as 
nature study or bird watching. 

Canp 40 Acres is used by various youth and scouting groups and is a semi-private wooded facility. The Town 
Forest, Town Park, Common with Gazebo, School Playgrounds, and an ambundance of tennis courts - many with 
lights are available to all. The fitness trail at the Health Center is a popular facility. 

The outdoor recreation area at Glen Road, Town Hall is being developed as a family area. New and m.odem 
playground equipment was installed in 1985. School grounds also are being improved steadily throughout the 
Town. A memorial "play area" in memory of Jason Stephenson is being planned for within the Rotary Park 
confines. It should materialize in 1987. 

The Recreation Director and Commission thank those many individuals and groups who help produce a final 
recreation product which is a model to many surrounding communities. 



Fourth of July Committee 



1986 was the year that found the Committee not only involved in planning and implenting the Fourth of July 
Program but also planning and coordinating the construction of our facility's expansion. Armed with an 
appropriation from Town Meeting and a corps of eager volunteer construction workers, we put the new addition 
on the 4th of July Headquarters, thereby providing total accessibility to the building for the handicapped 
and becoming the new home of the AIM Group. 

The 1986 program began with our Annual Fundraising Luncheon at the Knights of Columbus Hall. A program that 
is cosponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club, and Knights of Columbus, it has been the major 
fundraiser for the Committee. 

The Fourth of July activities began on Tuesday night with the Sons of Italy Spaghetti Supper and continued 
through Sunday morning's Marine Corps League Breakfast. In between we had suppers, put on by the Rotary, 
Lions, Kiwanis, and Knights of Columbus, with breakfasts cooked by the Minutemen and Knights of Columbus. 

^ain with the theme of participation, we expanded our co-ed athletic events to include the Couple's Relay 
Walk and the rebirth of the Hospital Bed Race. Volleyball also grew in popularity (an event that took over 
six hours due to the large number of entrants) and the Croquet Tournament, held on the lower courts, was 
once again a very popular event. 

The Lions videotaped the entire week; any groups wishing to show the tape at their functions can contact the 
Fourth of July Committee to obtain it. 

We also added a new bus program to pick up and return residents to their neighborhoods to help alleviate the 
parking problem. It was highly successful, and we hope to expand the program in 1987. 

The year came to a close as the Committee again participated with the Council on Churches to provide the 
lighting of the common at Christmas time. 

Special thanks again this year to our volunteer groups, including the Auxiliary Police Force, the Town for 
supporting us, and a very big thanks to the Wilmington Home Builders Association for playing a major role in 
building the new addition.

Public Buildings Department 



The Buzzell Senior Citizen Center opened in January. Renovation work continued through 1986 on this ongoing 
project. 

Overhead garage doors installed on the Fire Station have resulted in easier operation and a more energy 
efficient building. 

Voting machines were prograimned and polls set up for elections in April, September and November. Twelve 
voting machines were modified to make them more accessible. 

An intrusion alarm system was installed at the Wobum Street School as part of an ongoing program to install 
alarm systems in all buildings. 

Under the direction of Sergeant Jay Palmer the carport area at the Police Station was enclosed to provide 
additional office space. Wiring was also installed at the Police Station for the new computer system. 

The roof on the classroom wing at the North Intermediate School was replaced. 

Repairs to the exterior and painting was completed at the Roman House in November. The former Town Hall was 
painted in April. 

Work was started on installing underground wiring at the Common. This project is a joint effort by the 
Public Works and Public Buildings Departments. 

A major task was moving furniture, materials and supplies out of the High School to accommodate the 
renovation project. Everything that was moved out had to be returned as areas were completed. There was 
much shifting of items within the building. 

The above are highlights of projects completed in 1986. 

Special thanks to the personnel of the Public Buildings Department for an excellent job during 1986. 

To the department heads and employees that assisted the Public Buildings Department during 1986, Thank You. 
Your assistance is most appreciated.

Council on Aging 



The Council on Aging began on a very happy note in the month of January 1986 we moved into our fully 
equipped handicapped accessible Buzzell Senior Citizen Center. For many years serving our seniors in one 
large room, through the generosity of Mr. Mike Demoulas, was very difficult. Int the Buzzell Senior Center 
we have a private office area to help those seeking assistance form the coordinator, beautiful kitchen, game 
room, card room, medical supplies room, function room and medical office. We feel now we are ready to

Conservation Commission 



With continued growth in the scope of work required by the Conservation Conunission, 1986 has proven very 
successful for the preservation of Wilmingtons' many beautiful wetlands. By conserving one of our most 
important resources, the Conservation Commission diligently attempts to promote the protection of public or 
private water supply and groundwater supply, enhance flood control and storm damage prevention, prevent 
pollution and protect fisheries. 

Usually the Conservation Commission meets the first and third Wednesday of every month at Town Hall. These 
meetings are open to the public who are encouraged to attend and understand the protection process as set 
forth in the Wetlands Protection Act Regulations, (M.G.L. C.131, s.40). 

As part of the continued maturation process of our town and governmental process, the Conservation 
Commission has made an extended effort to supply accurate information and assistance to those applying for 
permits. This with hope that communication and active participation will prevent misunderstandings between 
the town and developers. During this past year the Conservation Commission made 1,330 on-site inspections 
and held 48 Wetlands Protection Act Hearings, in addition to our regular meetings. Commission members 
participate in other regional environmental organizations for support and education, such as Massachusetts 
Association of Conservation Commissions, Environmental Lobby of Massachusetts, Conservation Law Foundation, 
Ipswich River Watershed Association, Mystic River Watershed Association. 

The Commission greatfully acknowledges Mr. James Tighe, of Chestnut Builders, Inc. for his donation of 29.4 
acres, off of Woburn Street, and Mr. Ivan Quinchia for his donation of approximately 3/4 acre on Clifton and 
Pembroke Streets. Land donated by residents will be assured protection in its natural state and held in the 
public interest. 

In entering its 24th year of service, the Conservation Commission is looking forward to many exciting 
projects. These include the f inalization of the Open Space and Recreation Plan Update, as well as 
implementation of recommendations outlined therein. We look forward to cooperating on the 
Diagnostic/Feasibility Study of Silver Lake and working with other town departments on coordinated efforts. 
With the addition of a full time Conservation Administrator, the Conservation Commission will be able to 
actively pursue the concerns of the Commission in a more efficient time frame. 

The Conservation Commission appreciates the support and understanding of the citizens, boards, and town 
officials and are especially greatful to those who stop and take the time to enjoy the natural resources we 
try so hard to conserve for you.

Carter Lecture Fund 



The Carter Lecture Fund Committee presented its 1986 program, Mr. Mel Simons performing "COMEDY AND MUSIC," 
on May 15. 

Mr. Simons, a multi-talented entertainer, accordionist, master of ceremonies, and disc jockey, has made over 
100 appearances on The Good Day Show, broadcast daily from Channel 5, and has performed for numerous 
radio-station shows. 

On Wednesday, April 29, 1987, The Carter Committee will present Ms. Kathleen Dusek who will take us on a 
train trip from Paris to Istanbul, on The Orient Express . 

From Paris, we vnll pass through Rheimes, the Provincial capital of Champagne; into Salzburg, Austria; 
through Vienna and the Vienna Woods; onto Budapest, Hungary, Transylvania, Romania; and spend our last day 
aboard, travelling into Istanbul, Turkey. 

Please join us at 8:15 p.m. in the Herbert C. Barrows Auditorium for this 80-minute program of travel, to 
visit famous cathedrals, have lunch in the champagne cellars, dine onboard by candlelight, see Mozart's 
birthplace, Schonbrunn and Hoffburg Palaces, join a Strauss concert, see the blue Danube, Hungarian cowboys 
on a horse ranch, folk-dancing, castles, the birthplace of Count Dracula, mountain resorts, and the fabulous 
cities in Turkey.

Historical Commission 



The Historical Commission was pleased to hold an Open House on the first Sunday of each month. On one of 
these occasions, Bemhard A. Toombs exhibited antique store advertisements. Visitors at these Open Houses 
saw our new acquisitions of a cradle and blanket chest donated by the Friends of the Hamden Tavern. Also 
on display was an interesting sewing table owned by Alice Hathaway Dillaway. 

We are pleased to have new signs, indicating Open Houses, done by the students at the West Intermediate 
School. TTie back porch of the Tavern was completed with screens by our Maintenance Department. More work 
was accomplished on the Carriage House doors by our tenant, Jim Surrette. 

It is our hope to continue redecorating the remaining rooms in the Tavern and possibly preparing an herb 
garden. 

The Friends of the Harnden Tavern held Strawberry and Christmas Socials which were well attended. 
Dorothy Lafionatis and Dorothy McKinnon were re-appointed to the Commission. 

The Commission is now a member of the National Trust For Historic Preservation, Washington, D.C. 
We are contiuing with the placement of markers on historic houses in Wilmington. 

We regret the loss this year of two of our historic buildings; the Walker School and the former Roman 
Carriage House. We were pleased that the Roman House itself is beautifying the center of our Town with its 
attractive new paint; as is the former Town Hall. Another historical building dignifying our Town with its 
new coat is the Masonic Hall. 

The Commission hopes we have been of help to the many residents who have asked for our assistance in 
determining the historical merits of their property. Our meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each 
month at 7:30 p.m. at the Hamden Tavern. 



I am pleased to report that we now have weekly accounts and pictures of animals picked up and animals for 
adoption printed in the Town Crier. Also, due to the kindness and cooperation of Wilmington retail 
establishments, we are now able to post adoption notices.

Council For The Arts 



During 1986 the activities of the Wilmington Council for the Arts were once again supported by nearly $5,000 
in funds generated by the Massachusetts Arts Lottery game, "Megabucks", and the Council enjoyed another 
interesting and productive year. 

Five new appointees, Janet Brewer, Dora Hirtle, Frances Keough, Mary Masse and Helena Minton, were welcomed 
to Council membership as Dan Ballou Sr. assumed Chairmanship of the Council in May. 

Three Charter members, Annette Campbell, Adele Passmore, and Elizabeth White, each having served the 
allotted three consecutive terms were appointed an Advisory Committee by the Town Manager. 

In January Scholarship recipients for 1985, Stephanie Dionne and John Magurie, presented their art work to 
date in a special exhibition sponsored by the Council at Memorial Library. 

An Article seeking matching funds to develop the vacant "Old Town Hall" as a Center for artistic and 
cultural pursuit passed unanimously at the Annual Town Meeting. However, since the School Department 
required storage space for the duration of the High School Renovation Project, the building could not be 
turned over to the Council until late fall. 

Council funds brought an exciting performance, The Spectrum Percussion Trio, to Wildwood School children in 
April. The talented group was well received by both students and teachers. 

Grants were awarded to the High School Fine and Performing Arts department to develop a basic costume 
wardrobe and to the Recreation Department to underwrite a return performance by the "Little Red Wagon", a 
traveling theatre group from the University of New Hampshire, which performed at the Glen Road Town Hall 
during July. 

Scholarships were awarded in June to Tina Allen, a senior at Wilmington High School, and to Lisa Rae Spahl, 
a Fine Arts major at Mass. College of Art, to further their education in the field of Art. 

The 6th Annual Arts Festival on the Town Common was held this year on September 20th. The magnificent music 
of the Lancaster Brass Quintet again emmenated from the Gazebo while an appreciative audience viewed well 
over one hundred drawings and paintings as well as sculpture by local artists. A special award was 
presented for the first time this year in memory of John Brooks, past chairman of the Council. This is to 
be an annual event and will be presented to an outstading Wilmington Artist. Receiving the Brooks Award in 
1986 was pastel artist Dora Hirtle of Jaquith Road. 

The fall granting cycle with its November first deadline brought an increase in funding from the 
Statehouse. A newly established (PASS) Grant, (Performing Arts Student Series) which funds ticket purchases 
for school children who wish to attend performances anywhere in the region, brought third grade classes from 
Shawsheen School to the Wang Centre in December to view "The Nutcracker" by the Boston Ballet. 

Grants were awarded to the Merrimack Lyric Opera Co., Wobum Street School, Creative Arts/Reading and to the 
Wilmington Arts Center. The Council plans to fund an "Arts Bus" trip to the Museum of Fine Arts to view the 
new Evans Wing Galleries during the spring of 1987. 

After release of the "Old Town Hall" by the School Department the Arts Council held its first meeting in the 
new Arts Center on November 13th. A lease was signed in mid-December for one year to pursue development of 
a Center for the Arts in Wilmington and an agreement was made between the Arts Council and Wilmington 
Community Schools Inc. to share space for arts related classes and other programs 

The Arts Center provides an unprecedented opportunity to bring together residents of the Town of all ages 
who have an interest in one or more of the various forms of artistic expression. The Council hopes that 
those with special interest in the Arts will feel free to come forward and offer suggestions and/or help in 
formulating activities at the Center. 

Artists and arts oriented organiations in the Communtiy are always urged to seek Arts Lottery Grants. 
Applications are available at Memorial Library and at Town Hall where they are submitted to the Arts Council 
for review each spring and fall. 

Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Arts Council should contact the Town Manager or any member of 
the Board of Selectmen or Arts Council. New members are always welcome.

Permanent Building Committee 



In additional to the $6,500,000 authorization by the Town in 1985, an additional amount o£ $1,250,000 was 
authorized at Town Meeting in 1986 for the following work: (l) repairs and renovations to the High School 
Auditorium, (2) boiler repairs, (3) exterior bleachers and storage area, (4) school furnishings, (5) roof 
repairs, (6) acoustical gymnasium divider. The Town was also awarded an energy grant for the replacement of 
exterior windows and other energy conservation items within the High School. 

Work at the High School was 98% completed through 1986 and school opened as planned on September 6, 1986 
with minimal disruption to classes. 

The Committee would like to thank Representative James Miceli for his successful endeavor in obtaining the 
additional funds from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy Resources. 

The Permanent Building Committee met twice a month during the past year to review the contractor's 
requisitions and construction scheduling. The Committee also made weekly inspections of the High School 
during construction and attended contractor's weekly job meetings. 

The Permanent Building Committee would also like to thank the Administration and staff of the High School 
for their patience and support during the past fifteen months. 



Housing Authority 



For the Wilmington Housing Authority, 1986 proved to be the culmination of many years of effort to provide 
affordable housing in town. The Board Members remained the same as in the previous year, with Chairman 
Kevin McMillan, Vice Chairman William Strob, Secretary Warren Newhouse, Treasurer Elanie Hachey, and 
Assistant Treasurer Dan Gillis. Executive Director Lillian Buckley also remained to administer the daily 
operations of the Housing Authority. 

Final designs have been submitted for the new elderly complex of 32 units which will include an innovative 
solar gallery front. A contract has also been signed for construction of a new sewer line to serve both the 
new units and the original ones, thus eliminating the chronic septic problems that have been experienced 
over the years. An extensive modernization program, involving the existing elderly housing, is in the 
contract document stage and almost ready to go out to bid. Also included in the WHA modernization schedule 
is the first complete retrofit of a family home for a wheelchair-bound occupant. The new elderly housing 
also will have two totally accessible handicap units, and the original community room at Deming Way will be 
made handicap-accessibe as part of the extensive modernization of the office, laundry, kitchen, restrooms, 
and maintenance building. 

The eight single family houses planned have gone out to bid and construction should begin in Spring. This 
development of modular homes in state housing is the first in the State and will be used as a model for 
others that may follow. 

A total revamping of the Tenant Selection procedures, madated by the State in December, proved to be a 
challenge to the office staff, as all records had to be updated and new regulations implemented. 

Although 1986 proved to be a challenge, 1987 should prove to be even more so as we move into the hectic 
construction stage with four developments at once.

Redevelopment Authority 



During the year, the Wilmington Redevelopment Authority continued its work on the Town Center project and 
transportation improvements along Routes 129, 38, and 62. A budget of $50,000 was set aside to develop a 
model of the proposed Town Center project, to hire a consultant to analyze the impact of the project upon the 
Town of Wilmington and to provide the local match necessary to receive a Feasibility Grant from the Executive 
Office of Communities and Development. Representatives of the Redevelopment Authority have worked closely 
with the residents and businesses in the affected area, the Town Center Task Force of the Wilmington Chamber 
of Commerce, the Board of Selectmen and Town Manager, League of Women Voters and officials from various state 
agencies to ensure that the project will meet the needs of the community without a detrimental impact upon the 
quality of life in Wilmington. The activities undertaken during 1986 will prepare the Town for the 25% Design 
Hearing to be sponsored by the Massachusetts Department of Public Works on March 30, 1987. Furthermore, the 
Redevelopment Authority will be able to devote more time to the project as a result of the impending 
feasibility grant from the Executive Office of Communities and Development which will enable the Authority to 
hire a planner and architect /town design consultant. It appears that 1987 will be a very busy year for the 
Redevelopment Authority. 

Besides the work completed on the Town Center Project, the Redevelopment Authority continues to reap the 
benefits of its investment 20 years ago in the Jewel Industrial Park. At the end of 1986, there were eight 
businesses operating in Jewel Park employing a total of 623 people. Based upon Fiscal Year 1986 data provided 
by the Town Assessor's Office, the total assessed value of the park was $8,127,100 and the annual tax revenue 
to the Town of Wilmington totalled $177,415. 



Metropolitan Area Planning Council 



During 1986 the Town of Wilmington contributed $3,169 (18.1 cents per capita) to the Metropolitan Area 
Planning Council (MAPC) for technical assistance. With Wilmington's participation, the MAPC was able to 
continue its involvement in land use, economic development, housing, transportation, and environmental 
preservation issues, forming and implementing policies which benefit the metropolitan region. 

The Town of Wilmington requested specific assistance with the scoping of a Groundwater Protection Study. 
The Town also benefitted from the following regional plans, policies, and programs: 

the update of the statewide MDPW State Highways Map; 

update of the Transportation Improvement Program, required to maintain eligibility for federal 
highway funds; 

a study of Route 128 and surrounding communities, still in progress; 
the study of the shortfall of local funds for roadway maintenance; 

the Traffic Volume Data File, a comprehensive collection of traffic volume counts and other 
information useful to highway planning departments and other engineers; 

MAPC's Pavement Management Manual, a project to help highway superintendents determine how to 
efficiently expend local roadway budgets. 

Two major publications produced by MAPC, Inclusionary Housing and Linkage Programs in Metropolitan Boston 
and The Community Profile Series, have also been beneficial to the Town of Wilmington. The first 
publication provides a useful guide for communities concerned with the issues of affordable housing. The 
second publication, which was developed by MAPC's Economic Development and Data Analysis department, 
contains demographic data, including population and employment projections, municipal finances, industrial 
and commercial surveys, land use maps (with comparisons to 1950) and other useful information.

Water Department 



WATER 

The design of the North Wilmington Water Treatment was completed. The plans and specifications were 
approved by the Department of Environmental Quality Engineering. The project will be bid early in 1987. In 
spite of a State Grant, the financial impact of the debt service will require an increase in water rates in 
1987. 

A representative of the Board continued participation with the Regional Planning Group with Reading and 
North Reading. 

An application was submitted to the Department of Environmental Quality Engineering for funding the 
replacement of water mains in North Wilmington. 

The Chestnut Street well was cleaned and redeveloped to increase its capacity. 

The Water Department Rules and Regulations were revised and updated. In addition, the Special Water 
Department Charges were increased. 

SEWER 

The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority sewer assessment increased 43% to $255,000. 
Our consultants began updating our Sewer Master Plan. 

The industrial discharge monitoring program was initiated. Approximately 40 industries will be tested under 
this program to verify that they are meeting their discharge permits. 

The construction of the Ballardvale Street sewer was completed, financed entirely by private industry. 

The contract for the construction of the Cedar Street sewer was signed. This sewer will tie Deming Way 
Housing for the Elderly into the town's sewer system. 

Two (2) applications (Project Information Forms) were submitted to the Division of Water Pollution Control 
for funding sewer extensions. 

The license of one septage hauler to use the septage dumping station was suspended for violation of Sewer 
Department regulations. 

IN APHIECIATION 



After 51 years of service to the Town of Wilmington, our Clerk of the Water and Sewer Department, Sylvia L. 
Bowman, retired this fall. We wish her a long and happy retirement.

School Department 



We are pleased to submit the Annual Report of the activities of the Wilmington Public Schools for the year 
1986. A review of the year's activities brings out the following highlights: 

WID1INGT0N HIGH SCHOOL 

With the help of the Wilmington Catholic, Medthodist, and Baptist Church communities, who provided us with 
furniture for classrooms when it became apparent that our 300 new units were not going to arrive on time as 
promised, we were able to open the 1986-87 year on time. 

The students, faculty, and administration of Wilmington High School are congratulated for saving the town 
thousands of dollars by being flexible enough to learn in a productive fashion in the face of noise, room 
location changes, and various other related disturbances over the two year period of active construction. 

Wilmington High School's most recent S.A.T. scores were 436 on the verbal and mathematics 473. 

In 1986, various Wilmington groups, businesses and service organizations contributed $44,000 to the high 
school's graduating class. 

Graduates of the Wilmington High School's Class of 1986 were accepted at Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, Boston 
College, Universities of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Merrimack College, Suffolk University, 
Emerson College, Syracuse University. 

Mrs. Elaine Levine of the Wilmington High School Guidance Department has developed excellent Junior and Senior 
Class packets of information concerning college application processes and career information. She also 
organized and formulated a guidance newsletter which focuses on up to the moment academic and vocational 
information. 

Wilmington High School Master Scheduler, Mr. Lynch, plus guidance counselors Mr. Cogan, Mr. Breakey, Miss 
Marshall, Mrs. Curley, and Mrs. Levine should be complimented for scheduling grades 9-12 over the last two 
years to a 95-97% selection accuracy rate. 

The Wilmington High School student extra curricula program continues to flourish, offering many activities 
that didn't exist at the school prior to 1984. Examples of the above are our school newspaper, The Wildcat 
News, Students Against Driving Drunk (S.A.D.D.) Chapter, our peer leadership unit, our participation in the 
Framingham State College sponsored historical essay competition, the activity of our Student School Committee 
and related active course they are following, the existance of an active student drama group and the 
championship involvement of those said youngsters in the Boston Globe Drama Festival, when in their first 
competition they won a regional citation for their offering "Scences from American Life." 

Mrs. Norma Rushton, Wilmington High School school nurse will at the request of the high school, begin a 
medically oriented student activities program for youngsters interested in becoming doctors, nurses, x-ray 
technicians and medical technicians. 

The high school principal wishes to thank the Wilmington Permanent Building Committee for their support in 
helping him maintain a proper academic climate during construction. He is particularly grateful to Mrs. Diane 
Allan and Mr. Bernard LaVita for the efforts they have expended in their roles as successive chairpersons of 
the Wilmington Permanent Building Committe. 

FOREIGN LANGUAGE 

In 1972, all seventh graders for the first time were given the opportunity of taking either Exploratory French 
or Exploratory Spanish. This replaced the old format where only the "elite" few were able to take French. In 
1977 we were able to have our first Spanish V, class. Now a decade later, a record breaking thirty-one 
students are enrolled in Spanish V. Adding the nineteen French V students to this figure, we have an amazing 
total of fifty seniors taking a fifth year of a foreign language. 

More and more of our fifth year students are taking the college achievement test in either French or Spanish. 
In the most recent graduating class, one student had a score of 700, many scored in the 600' s and several 
scored in the 500' s. Scores like these allow our graduates who go to college to either be exempt from further 
college language study or to be placed in advanced college courses. Some even receive college credit because 
of the proficiency they are able to obtain at Wilmington High School.

BUSINESS EDUCATION 



Our newly renovated "Office of the 80' s" classroom is equipped with office style furniture and with automated 
machines e.g. IBM PC computers, Wang Word Processor, electronic memory typewriters, electronic calculators. 
The courses held in the simulated classroom are designed to help students learn and understand a wide variety 
of realistic office-related activities. Students will rotate through different positions within the simulated 
office and will experience the pleasure and pressures of interacting with their peers through business 
activities in a work place atmosphere. 

A new MINI-SEMINAR has been introduced which provides for different members of the business community to 
conduct lectures and hands-on experiences about their business. Representatives of business colleges (two and 
four year institutions) also conduct MINI-SB-IINARS to create awareness of the merits of post -secondary 
business education. 

A SHADOWING PROGRAM in which a student "shadows" an employee of an industry located in Wilmington by spending 
a working day viewing the activities/responsibilities of the worker on the job has been introduced. This 
activity enhances the students' insight to a future career decisions/choices. 

Two very active business clubs for students, DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) and OEA (Office 
Education Association), are expandingl DECA is designed to develop education in the marketing spectrum, and 
OEA is dedicated to promoting excellence in office related professions. 

ENGLISH DEPARTMENT 

A continued emphasis of the English Department has been a structuring of courses to increase reading 
comprehension and to strenghten the students' ability to communicate in writing. Two major objectives have 
been to broaden course contents in order to expose students to a variety of classical and world literature and 
to facilitate the students' writing of expository and analytical essays. 

An alternative curriculum program in English targets students who have not achieved success in a traditional 
setting. Small groups, individualized assignments and a strong emphasis on writing enable students to 
progress at a rate suitable to their learning styles. 

A verbal S.A.T. review course has a large enrollment both as a semester course and as a three week seminar. 
This course prepares a student in test taking skills, word attack skills, vocabulary development and reading 
comprehension. Also, S.A.T. type materials and exercises are included in the curriculum of sophomore and 
junior English. 

SOCIAL STUDIES DEPARTMENT 

The Social Studies program is an articulated interdisciplinary, multimedia program. The program develops 
concepts and generalizations from the social sciences, historical foundations, and the skills necessary in the 
gathering, analyzing, and evaluating of information. 

The program is designed to develop curiosity about social data and respect for evidence even when it 
contradicts prejudices and preconceptions. The program is intended to develop appreciation and respect for 
the rich variety of American cultural contributions and mult-cultural/intemational institutions. It helps 
students learn to accept diversity as natural and helps them learn to value human dignity. 

New honors and Advanced Placement levels have been added in grades nine, ten, eleven, and twelve. 

SCHOOL HEALTH SERVICES 

Our goals are to promote good health and a safe environment for students and school personnel. 
Our screening programs included: 

1. vision and hearing grades 1-8 and grade 10 

2. pre-school vision and hearing including tympanometry 

3. posture screening grades 5-9 in connection with the physical education department. 

All deviances are referred for additional evaluation after a rescreening is performed. A special program is 
presented for girls in grades 4, 5, and 6 on the menstrual cycle. Immunizations are reviewed and updated as 
needed and required by law. 

The school nurse is a member of the CORE evaluation team and is responsible for home assessments, medical and 
vision, hearing evaluations as required. 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND ATHLETICS 

The Physical Education Department cited several students for outstanding achievement in physical education: 

1986 Danielle Vinal Eric Torell 

1987 Denise MacMullin Mark Russell 

1988 Farah Kahn Jeffrey Murphy 

1989 Jennifer Delnino Christian McMillan

PERFORMING AND FINE ARTS DEPARTMENT 

While maintaining a comprehensive program of studies in Art, Music, and Theatre, grades K-12, the Performing 
and Fine Arts Department has successfully broadened its horizons. As the talent and enthusiasm of students 
have been nurtured, we have extended our activities to programs, exhibits, and concerts in the community and 
beyond . 

Our students have participated in poster contests with several civic groups. High School students Melissa 
Frey, Stephen Grasso, Virginia Grice, Tom Thornton, and Chris Sullivan designed covers for the football 
program books. In a joint project with the Postal Service marking Stamp Collecting Month the following 
students were the three top winners: 1st Prize - Dan Kelley; 2nd Prize - Jay Walsh; 3rd Prize - Carla 
Squillante. Four of our students - John Hacker, Chris Sullivan, Bruce Phillips, and Taunia Soderquist - 
received recognition and awards at the Globe Scholastic Art Award presentations at Fanueil Hall, an event at 
which we were further honored by an invitation for our High School Jazz Band and Vocal Ensemble to perform. 

We were gratified by the success of our Drama Club whose first entry of "Scenes from American Life" made it 
successfully to the semi-finals in the Drama Guild Competition. Stathis Feizidis, Karen Snyder, and Jennifer 
Campbell were recognized for their individual performances. 

The Band and Choral students are selected on an annual basis to perform by audition, with the District Band, 
Orchestra, and Chorus. This year we were particularly proud of Jeff Murphy who was selected Orchestra 
Timpanist for the entire Eastern Division. Jeff will travel to Baltimore in March where he will participate 
with outstanding young musicians from the entire Eastern region. New England District Band, Orchestra, and 
Chorus members from Wilmington this year are: Paula Malenchini, Chorus; Michael LaCava, Band-Tenor Sax; and 
Jeff Murphy, Orchestra-Percussion.

READING/LANGUAGE ARTS 



Three new language arts programs were begun in all elementary schools to ensure that the K-6 Language Arts 
curriculum would be uniform among schools and coordinated with the Reading program. The programs selected 
were Houghton Mifflin Spelling, Rinehart Functional Handwriting, and McDougal, Littell Building English 
Skills . Building English Skills is a complete, developmental English program that leads students toward 
mastery of essential writing, speaking, listening, and related language skills. The Houghton Mifflin spelling 
program supplements an individualized approach. The skills will support and expand spelling proficiency, 
dictionary, proof-reading, and vocabulary. The Rinehart Functional Handwriting System is now taught in grades 
one through six. A Rinehart consultant works with each classroom teacher. An evaluation of each chiLl's 
progress is completed at the end of the year. 

Wilmington's FIFTH ANNUAL SUMMER READING PROGRAM, which is a cooperative effort between the Wilmington 
Memorial Library under the supervision of Mrs. Sarah Rueter and Mrs. Brenda Squire of the Wilmington Public 
Schools, was held. Star-Spangled Summer was a star-spangled success. A total of 614 reading kits were given 
out during the summer and over 17,256 items were checked out from the end of school through September 
2nd--l,000 more than last summer. Wilmington children are reading during the summer! 

Diane DeFrancesco, Ruth Filipowicz (a t welve-year veteran), Donna Florence, Lynn Gordon, and Judy Austin 
volunteered their services as VOLUNTEER READING TUTORS throughout the school year. The VRTs received a 
six-week training session and work with one or two students in order to provide individualized reading 
support. Wilmington students greatly benefit from this tutorial assistance. 

The Chapter I PARENT ADVISORY COUNCIL held three general meetings this year. The theme for their "Make and 

Take" spring workshop was Following Directions. Both parents and children enjoyed an afternoon of fun. The 

Newspaper Committee published two newsletters which were helpful and kept parents 

informed throughout the year. 

The PAC officers for 1985-86 were: 

Paulette Kalagher Chairperson 

Deborah Bartnick Vice Chairperson 

Susan Farkas Secretary 

Patricia Fenton Comptroller 

Marilyn Hardy Newsletter Chairperson 

McDougal, Littell and Compeiny conducted its YOUNG WRITER'S ANNUAL contest and forty Wilmington elementary 
students submitted entries to be published in the 1986 edition of the YOUNG WRITER'S ANNUAL. Taylor Stillman, 
a student from the Wildwood School, was a winner, and his poem, "Space", was published. 

Wilmington grade 5 and 6 students again participated in the LOWELL SUN SPELLING BEE. Stephen Lynn, a Woburn 
Street School student, and Derek Gray, a Shawsheen School student, were finalists who participated in the area 
competition. 



SPECIAL EDUCATION 



During the last calendar year, the Special Education Department wrote an Early Childhood Special Education 
Grant. The goals of the grant were to increase publicity and outreach for the Chapter 766 three and four year 
old screening, to improve existing services for three and four year old special needs students by providing 
in-service workshops for staff involved with this population as well as to provide a series of parent seminars 
on the overall development of children ages 0-5. The grant was funded by the Massachusetts Department of 
Education, and a series of in-service training programs were conducted for approximately 40 members of the 
Wilmington School Department. 

In addition a six week seminar series presented by Resource Learning teachers, psychologists and speech 
pathologists from the Special Education Department was provided to parents of very young children. 



SCHOOL FOOD SERVICE DEPARTMENT 



The School Food Service Department has 55 employees plus 6 substitutes for six schools. 

An average of 1,950 lunches were served each day. There is a partial or full participation percentage rate of

1986 the Wilmington School Committee, acting upon the recommendation of Superintendent Robert P. Horan, voted 
to establish a K-5, 6-8, 9-12, grade organizational structure for Wilmington in September, 1987. Mr.

As a regional vocational /technical school, Shawsheen Tech serves five towns which include Bedford, 
Billerica, Burlington, Tewksbury, and Wilmington. Our prime concern is to train students for gainful 
employment. Since 80% of the jobs in today's world of work do not require a college education, the 
vocational and technical training offered at Shawsheen Tech results in just about all of the graduates 
getting jobs in their area of training. 

As with every year, many activities take place which affect students, parents, and district townspeople. 
Listed below are several such activities. 



This past year. Open House was held on January 21, 1987. Invitations were sent to all 8th grade students 
and their parents in order to give them the opportunity to visit the school and see the shops in operation. 
Teachers were on hand to explain the skill training in the different shop areas while the academic teachers 
were available to answer questions concerning the academic requirements of the school. This was by far one 
of the largest turnouts of any Open House held by the school. 



Adult Evening Education was offered once again this past year and continues to be extremely popular with 
over 400 adults enrolled in approximately 19 different programs. 



This past year Shawsheen Tech hosted a visiting committee comprised of members of the New England 
Association of Schools and Colleges. The committee spent three days at Shawsheen Tech evaluating the school 
in terms of our stated philosophy and objectives and the extent to which the school meets the educational 
needs of the students and the district communities. The visiting committee submitted their final report to 
the Commission on Vocational, Technical and Career Institutions, and at the 101st Annual Meeting of the New 
England Association of Schools and Colleges at the Copley Plaza Hotel in Boston, Shawsheen Tech was awarded 
initial institutional accreditation. This indicates we have met standards of membership and complied with 
requirements for extensive evaluation and peer group review by the Association which monitors accredited 
schools and colleges to ensure that standards of membership are maintained. 



In accordance with guidelines established in past years, the final budget was reviewed and passed by the 
Regional School Committee on January 27, 1987. 



In keeping with our past practice, Shawsheen Tech's Craft Advisory Committee met in the fall and spring of 
this past year. We have been most fortunate in having a large and very interested group of advisors whose 
guidance over the years has been extremely valuable to the school.

Student Activities 



Shawsheen Tech offers many extra-curricular activities to students attending our school. This year students 
took part in such activities as the Vocational Industrial Clubs of America (VICA) , Toys For Tots, school 
newspaper, drama club, and pop band as well as many sports teams fielded by the school. 



Our house building project for the 85/86 school year was built in Tewksbury, and the students' work was 
completed in June. Our students also continued to work on other outside projects during the year: such as, 
the Wilmington Senior Center, Tewksbury Fire Department, and Burlington High School. This year's house 
project is being undertaken in the town of Billerica and should be completed by this June. These projects 
give the construction trade students excellent experience in the actual building process. 



The year ahead promises to be an exciting and challenging one as well as a year of transition for the 
students and staff of Shawsheen Tech. Mr. Benjamin Wolk, whose name grew to be synonymous with the 
institution "Shawsheen Tech", has retired. The contributions of this extraordinary individual will be 
permanently felt in this school district. 

On December 16, 1986, the School Committee voted Mr. Charles Lyons the school's new 

Superintendent -Director. Mr. Lyons began his appointment the beginning of February. Until that time, Mr. 
Robert Cunningham acted as Interim Superintendent for the school. 



In accordance with the agreement between the five towns, the assessment of costs is based on the percentage 
of enrollment. The enrollment as of October 1, 1986 was as follows:

proposed buffer zone that would be between Compugraphic and the residential area. A standing vote was taken 
and the article lost. Finance Committee disapproved. Planning Board approved as amended Yes 147 No 174

TOWN OF WILMINGTON, MASSACHUSETTS 



NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 
June 30, 1986 
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies 

The accounting policies for financial reporting purposes of the Town of Wilmington 
conform to generally accepted accounting principles for local governmental units except 
as indicated in Note 2. The following is a summary of the significant accounting 
policies : 

A. Fund Accounting 

The town reports its financial activities in several funds and one account group 
in order to comply with the limitations and restrictions placed on both the 
resources made available to the town and the services provided. The various funds 
are grouped in the financial statements in this report into five generic fund 
types and two broad fund categories as follows: 

GOVERNMENTAL FUNDS 

General Fund - The general fund is the general operating fund of the town. It is 
used to account for all financial resources except those required to be accounted 
for in another fund. 

Special Revenue Fund - General Revenue Sharing - This special revenue fund is 
used to account for the proceeds of the State and Local Fiscal Assistance Act and 
their expenditures as prescribed by the Office of Revenue Sharing. 

Special Revenue Funds - Others - This special revenue fund is used to account for 
the proceeds of specific revenue resources (other than general revenue sharing, 
expendable trust or major capital projects) that are legally restricted to 
expenditures for specific purposes. 

Capital Projects Fund - This fund is used to account for the purchase or 
construction of major capital facilities. 

FIDUCIARY FUNDS 

Trust and Agency Funds - Trust and agency funds are used to account for assets by 
the town in a trustee capacity or as an agent for individuals, private 
organizations, other governments and/or other funds. These include expendable 
trust, non-expendable trust and agency funds. Non-expendable trust funds are 
accounted for in a manner that permits the periodic measurement of revenues 
earned, expenses incurred and/or net income in order to demonstrate maintenance of 
capital. Expendable trust funds are accounted for in essentially the same manner 
as governmental funds. Agency funds are custodial in nature (assets equal 
liabilities) and do not involve measurement of results of operations. 

ACCOUNT GROUP 

Long-Term Debt and Liabilities - Long-term liabilities expected to be financed 
from governmental funds are accumulated in the general long-term debt group of 
accounts. This account group is not a fund. It is only concerned with the 
measurement of financial position and, therefore, is not involved with a 
measurement of the results from any operations. 

B. Basis of Accounting 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared principally on the 
modified accrual basis of accounting. This method recognizes revenues when they 
become measurable and available. Expenses are recognized under this method as 
they are incurred. 

Revenue Recognition - Property tax revenues are recognized when they become 
available. Available means then due or past due and receivable within the current 
period or expected to be collected soon enough thereafter to be used to pay 
liabilities of the current period. 

All other revenues are recognized throughout the year when cash is received. 
Receipts during the sixty days immediately following the close of the fiscal year 
are also recognized as available revenue. 



-104- 



In applying the susceptible to accrual concept to intergovernmental revenues, thp 
legal and contractual requirements of the numerous individual programs are used as 
guidance. There are, however, essentially two types of these revenues. In one, 
monies must be expended on the specific purpose or project before any amounts will 
be paid to the town, therefore, revenues are recognized based upon the 
expenditures recorded. In the other, monies are virtually unrestricted as to 
purpose of expenditure and are usually revocable only for failure to comply with 
prescribed compliance requirements. These resources are reflected as revenues at 
the time of receipt or earlier if the susceptible to accrual criteria is met. 

Expenses - Expenditures are recorded during the year on a cash disbursement 
basis. In addition, as required by Massachusetts General Laws, disbursements made 
during the fifteen days immediately following the close of each fiscal year and 
which pertain to the prior year are recorded as warrants payable and expenses as 
of June 30th. 

Purchase orders outstanding at June 30th related to annual operating expenses are 
recorded as encumbrances and, accordingly, as a reservation of fund balances at 
that date. 

Deferred Revenue - Property taxes and other revenues that are measurable but not 
available have been classified as deferred revenue on June 30, 1986. 

Departures from Generally Accepted Accounting Principles 

For years prior to 1985, the town presented its financial statements on the basis of 
accounting practices prescribed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Department of 
Revenue. These practices differed in many significant respects from G.A.A.P. 

During 1981. the Commonwealth of Massachusetts issued a revised uniform municipal 
accounting system entitled "U.M.A.S." The departures from G.A.A.P. under this revised 
system have been significantly narrowed. The town has adopted a modified U.M.A.S. for 
its financial statement presentation for 1985. 

The significant departures from G.A.A.P. included in the Town of Wilmington's financial 
statements are: 

a. Retirement benefits are provided for on a "pay-as-you-go" basis rather than an 
acceptable acturarial cost methods (see note 5). 

b. General fixed asset acquisitions are recorded as expenditures at the time 
purchases are made rather than being capitalized in a general fixed asset group of 
accounts . 

c. Purchases for materials and supplies inventories are recorded as expenditures 
rather than assets at the time of purchase.

Lift your lamp. Lady. 

Lift it for those you've always welcomed. 

For the exile and the stranger. For the refugee and the immigrant. 
For all the members of the human family the world so often finds 
it convenient to ignore, or despise, or persecute. 

And lift your lam.p. Lady, for our brothers and sisters in this country. 
For the farmers and factory workers fighting to hold onto their dignity. 
For the parents struggling to give their children more than they had, 
more education, more opportunity, more hope. 

For the millions among us still without work or enough to eat or even 
a roof over their heads. 
And lift it for us, too. Lady. 

Lift it for the powerful, the comfortable, the well-fed, the well- 
educated, the satisfied. Remind us of who we are and where we come 
from and what we were taught to believe. 

Don't let us forget. Lady. Remind us always as you lift your lamp 
beside the Golden Door. 

from a Tribute to Lady Liberty 
bv Governor Mario Cuomo of New York
